Yeah, I work down in the mines
I work hard ev'ryday
I got a woman home
Waiting to take my pay
I'm that ma-a-an, in the framer mines
She can spend my dollar on, like she can my dime

Yes, I work down in the mine
I've got a Cadillac Eight
My woman's got the job
Keepin' my bid'ness straight
I'm that ma-a-an, in the framer mines
She can spend my dollar on, like she can my dime

Now, the woman that I'm lovin'
She stand right up for me
She roll my biscuits righteous
Ev'ry night for me
I'm that ma-a-an, in the framer mine
She can spend my dollar on, like she can my dime

(harmonica & instrumental)

Hm, I work down in the mines
Shovel coal by the ton
My sweet woman out
All night on a run
I'm that ma-a-an, in the framer mines
She can spend my dollar on, like she can my dime

Now, I don't mind workin' hard
If she'll only treat me right
But if I catch her messin' 'round
It'll be to doggone tight
I'm that ma-a-an, in the framer mines
She can spend my dollar, on like she can my dime

~
